A new, occasional series of essays/posts from phans who are either in academia or have an intellectual bent.</em></p> <p><em>While Phish was broken up, some fans used the time to go to grad school. There are plenty of fields where a die-hard Phish fan might find an academic home. In addition to more established fields like ethnomusicology, popular music study and media studies, did you know there is now a field of study (interdisciplinary in nature) known as fandom studies? (You can check out the fairly new <a href="https://www.intellectbooks.co.uk/journals/view-Journal,id=213/" target="_blank">Journal of Fandom Studies</a> online.) There&rsquo;s even a term, &ldquo;aca-fan&rdquo; (it&rsquo;s clunky, to be sure), used to describe fans (of, really, anything) who are also in academia.</em></p> <p><em>This essay is from Jnan Blau (self-professed aca-phan). He&rsquo;s a tenured professor at <a href="https://www.calpoly.edu/" target="_blank">Cal Poly San Luis Obispo</a>, in the <a href="https://coms.calpoly.edu/" target="_blank">Communication Studies</a> Department. He got his Master&rsquo;s and Ph.D. at Southern Illinois University, specializing in performance studies and intercultural communication, and actually wrote his doctoral dissertation on Phish and what he terms &ldquo;the Phish phenomenon.&rdquo; In a nutshell, he theorizes the hell out of Phish and phan culture, articulating how and why what they do onstage is so special and powerful, and how this radiates into the audience to become a thriving culture that mirrors and extends what Phish accomplishes through their music. Jnan is one of the first to publish about Phish in peer-reviewed academic journals - <a href="https://coms.calpoly.edu/faculty/blau" target="_blank">check out some of these papers here</a>. This piece was written recently (in, according to him, a flash of inspiration), and his first impulse was to share it with us. We do hope you&rsquo;ll check it out and enjoy it.</em></p> Thu, 07 Dec 2017 04:20:00 GMT donotreply@phish.net (@phishnet) Blog "Rise / Come Together" Video By Kelly Morris http://phi.sh/b/5a282da1 http://phi.sh/b/5a282da1 Wed, 06 Dec 2017 01:50:00 GMT donotreply@phish.net (@phishnet) Blog Mystery Jam Monday Part 303 http://phi.sh/b/5a24f53b http://phi.sh/b/5a24f53b <p>Welcome to the 303rd edition of Phish.Net&#39;s Mystery Jam Monday, the first* and easiest of December.

Or will one of our other multi-MJM winners break through first? For this week&#39;s puzzle&#39;s answer, it&#39;s time for a (recent) history lesson, as some may not know:</p> <p>After what was perceived by some fans as writers&#39; block, and many previous albums being mostly Trey and Tom collaborations with one or two songs sprinkled in from the other bandmates, the band scrapped their old approach and began a collaborative songwriting process in 2013. For inspiration, they began by rooting through Mike&#39;s notebooks (in which he writes about each show) for recent jams he felt were particularly cool. They relistened to those jams and the cool sections Mike noted, excised their favorite bits, and reshaped them into songs that debuted on 10/31/13 as <em>Wingsuit</em> &ndash; <a href="http://static.nugs.net/phish/ph131031_phishbill.pdf">see the 2013 PhishBill here</a> for the band&#39;s take on that songwriting process. I chose three of those reshaped jams for this week&#39;s MJM:<br /> <br /> - the <a href="http://phish.in/2012-08-19/light?t=12m10s">8/19/12 &quot;Light&quot;</a> had <a href="http://phish.in/2012-08-19/light?t=13m30s">a section that was written into &quot;555&quot;</a> &ndash; that particular section was played publicly only once, <a href="http://phish.in/2013-10-31/555?t=6m15s">during the &quot;555&quot; debut on 10/31/13</a>, but left on the cutting room floor for the album and all subsequent versions<br /> - the <a href="https://youtu.be/rzpseAli9GQ?t=495">9/14/11 Soundcheck</a> had <a href="https://youtu.be/rzpseAli9GQ?t=1813">a section that became &quot;Fuego,&quot;</a> and other sections that may have been <a href="https://youtu.be/rzpseAli9GQ?t=633">the genesis of &quot;Wombat&quot;</a> and perhaps even &quot;Wingsuit,&quot; as <a href="http://phish.net/user/My_Powerful_Mind">@My_Powerful_Mind</a> points out<br /> - the <a href="http://phish.in/2010-08-12/drowned?t=10m4s">8/12/10 &quot;Drowned&quot;</a> had <a href="http://phish.in/2010-08-12/drowned?t=12m15s">a section that became &quot;Waiting All Night&quot;</a></p> <p>The theme for this week&#39;s MJM is &quot;jams that became songs on <em>Fuego</em> / <em>Wingsuit</em>.&quot; Thus concludeth your history lesson. See y&#39;all on Monday for MJM303, where things get easy and less verbose once again.</p> <p><a href="http://livephish.com/"><img src="http://smedia.pnet-static.com/img/lp-logo-2012.jpg" /></a><a href="https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1O37oWdEDs-PdvC23B-c2e260QvISVDH0JuYULJYI9bY/edit#gid=0"><img src="http://smedia.pnet-static.com/img/mjm_results_2015.png" /></a></p> Mon, 27 Nov 2017 13:00:00 GMT donotreply@phish.net (@ucpete) Blog .Net helping save Net Neutrality http://phi.sh/b/5a1b11ad http://phi.sh/b/5a1b11ad <blockquote> <p><a href="http://smedia.pnet-static.com/img/netneutralitybox.png"><img src="http://smedia.pnet-static.com/img/netneutralitybox.png" style="float:right; width:100px" /></a>...get something nice for the Phish fan in your life &mdash; perhaps a nice pint of Phish Food? &mdash; because apparently they, more than anybody, care enough to save you and your Netflix addiction.</p> </blockquote> Sun, 26 Nov 2017 14:10:37 GMT donotreply@phish.net (@Lemuria) Blog Grateful for 30 Years http://phi.sh/b/5a159d46 http://phi.sh/b/5a159d46 <p><em>[Fan Keith Eaton, <a href="http://phish.net/user/Midcoaster">@Midcoaster</a>, is contributing a piece to the blog for the first time. He first became obsessed with music when, in 1979, he sat in a darkened theater and watched Apocalypse Now. Nothing was ever quite the same after that opening sequence.]</em></p> <p>After 30 years, I have to honestly ask myself, &quot;Is this devotion?&quot; That word, devotion, sort of goes against everything that I thought was irreverent in me all these years. Sort of. I mean, devotion is a weird thing. Many Americans marry but don&#39;t even want to acknowledge devotion, as it sort of conjures demeaning levels of servitude despite horrid conditions. (We opt for divorce rather than weathering the storm more often than not.)</p> <p>30 years of fandom, though, whoa. But it&#39;s never that. It&#39;s never a straight line. There was no sense of devotion during my irreverent (or so I thought) late-1980s self. There was this cool band that I saw, Phish, and they were nice dudes. They were dudes with whom I could talk about music when their set was done, slathering on my love praises for the SST and Touch and Go labels, even though I looked every part the slavishly devoted Deadhead.

It will be sold for&nbsp;$7, and will be served in a jar that&nbsp;you can buy for $3 (while supplies last). The jars were very popular at the previous fundraisers years ago (also held when Phish played Northerly), so we expect they&#39;ll sell out.&nbsp;</p> <p>For every &quot;Sample&quot; consumed over the weekend, Rock Bottom will donate fifty cents to Mockingbird, but they&#39;ll donate $1 to Mockingbird for every jar sold. So, in other words, <strong>if you buy a &quot;Sample <em>AND </em>a Jar,&quot; $1.50 of your $10 will go to Mockingbird</strong>, and support the funding of music education programs. Rock Bottom will also have some &quot;Phish-inspired&quot; live music on their roof on Thursday, July 13, and will have the &quot;Sample&quot; tapping party that day as well. This promotion thus runs from Thursday through Sunday the 16th. The rooftop will be open (and serving food) until&nbsp;10:30pm, and last call on the roof is at&nbsp;11:30pm. But the&nbsp;restaurant will be open post-show on&nbsp;Friday, Saturday, and Sunday&nbsp;with full menu until midnight and a late night menu until&nbsp;1am, with last call at&nbsp;1:30am. [<em>Editor&#39;s note</em>: I was there years ago after 1am&nbsp;post-show, and the place was full of fans.]&nbsp;&nbsp;The brewer, Raybird, and Kyle (an AGM) may be around if you show up at Rock Bottom, passing out Mockingbird information. PLEASE THANK THEM if you see them, as this is a very cool thing for them to do. (And you may see Kyle at a show as well, as he&#39;s a fan!) So, please, support this fundraiser if you can, and if you can&#39;t, at least tell your wook&nbsp;friends going to the shows to support it as well.&nbsp;</p> <p>THANK YOU ROCK BOTTOM!</p> <p><img alt="" src="http://smedia.pnet-static.com/img/Sample in a Jar.jpg" style="height:800px; width:600px" /></p> Thu, 22 Jun 2017 11:51:51 GMT donotreply@phish.net (@Icculus) News
